Bombay Bicycle Club have revealed that travels in Holland, Turkey and India helped inspire their new album.

The London band will release their fourth album in early 2014 and, speaking to NME in a new interview in this week's issue, available digitally and on newsstands now frontman Jack Steadman details how exploring the globe helped him personally, as well as providing influence for new songs.

"I think the travelling gave me a sense of wellbeing rather than any direct musical influence," Steadman says. "Also, we were getting more inspired by samples. They become the springboard for your song and, whether it’s an Indian song or something with Thai chanting, you should never deny that inspiration just because it sounds silly or because the thought of it is weird."

Earlier this week, the band revealed 'Carry Me', the first track from their forthcoming new album. The song is the first track to be taken from the London band's fourth album – the follow-up to 2011's 'A Different Kind Of Fix' – due for release next year.

An interactive video for the song can be seen below. The innovative video reflects the album artwork, paying homage to Eadweard Muybridge, a stop-motion photographer. Viewers are able to control the band’s actions throughout, essentially making them the director while the band perform in time to the music.
